Amateur photographer for the Creative Commons
Introduction
Now retired, I have worked as a computer programmer, writer, psychotherapist, and more. I carry at least one camera everywhere I go and contribute to society by making most of my photos available on the Creative Commons. Hundreds of websites and blogs have used my photos and you can find dozens of them on Wikipedia.

You can see the best of my photos on Google+ and on 500px. If you also want to see the not-so-good ones, see my Flickr feed. I'm also a fairly active member of the Photography on the Net and Talk Photography forums. I have fun with my phone's camera and post the results to Instagram, where my user name is garryknight.

I also enjoy creating electronica and electronic dance music (EDM) and publish my tunes here, on Soundcloud, YouTube, Vimeo, etc.

If you're interested in all things Android, iPhone, iPad, tablet computing, and mobile computing, you should follow me on Twitter. For everything else, add me to a Circle on Google+.

Wanted: Adventure!

Three girls, starring in the movie of their own lives...

This might turn out to be my favourite holiday photo, in that it seems to me to be a timeless metaphor.

Stone Groyne and Pavilion

According to WikiDiff:
" As nouns the difference between breakwater and groyne
is that breakwater is a construction in or around a harbour designed to break the force of the sea and to provide shelter for vessels lying inside while groyne is a (usually wooden) structure that projects from a coastline to prevent erosion, longshore drift etc; a breakwater."

So now you know. And now you have one more useful website URL to bookmark... ;-)

We already have a 7-day NHS, as everyone knows who's had to use it. And Jeremy Hunt's plans to change it are likely to turn out disastrously. Unsurprising, given how much he's reduced the funding...

He comes across as another sociopath, so a bit of both.

Class of 2016

It was that time of year when the students are sitting examinations. Two school leavers-to-be on the beach, perhaps contemplating a life at sea. That's the London Pelican tall sailing ship in the background, which I shared a photo of the other day.

Stick to the Shoreline

Which Ernest Hemingway novel was I thinking of when I shot this photo?

Sorry, No Vacancies

More photos from Weymouth, Dorset, UK today. And in summer this is what you see everywhere. Hotels and guest houses covered in bunting with 'No Vacancies' signs. It's a popular place.

I stayed at the Morven Guest House with a friend in July of 2016. We loved the hotel and especially the light and spacious room which had lots of cupboards and storage space for two people sharing. And the car park never runs out of space either. Room rentals were on the low side, despite the hotel being just a few minutes from the local beach. Weymouth Sealife Park is close by, as is Lodmoor Country Park and the RSPB reserve, and the lovely Greenhill Gardens is a short distance away, with the golden sands of Weymouth beach a little further in the other direction. The Morven is in an ideal location for a base from which to plan days out, being situated a little further out from the more commercial end of town, though a nearby bus can take you there if you don't have a car. If you do, then Chesil Beach, Portland, Dorchester, and the famous village of Cerne Abbas are all within easy reach. The beds are comfortable and the en-suite showers refreshing, and if you don't want the cooked breakfast, there is cereal and fresh fruit available. If you to want explore this corner of south-west England, I recommend the Morven as a very nice place to stay.

If a customer orders eggs on white toast and you're out of white bread you should let them know, not just serve them brown toast. Give them a chance to change their order. This isn't the first time this kind of thing has happened.
